5G has arrived with lightning-fast internet speeds in India, and many people wonder whether their smartphone supports 5G. Now, people are searching the web to know if their current phone will support 5G or if they will have to purchase a brand new smartphone for the 5G services. All three big Indian telecom service providers, Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea, have started to introduce their 5G networks in India according to the allocated bandwidths. Here you can know if your phone supports 5G.

List of Phones that Support 5G Network Connectivity

Apple iPhones launched after the introduction of iPhone 12 Mini support 5G services. Samsung Galaxy devices are also compatible with 5G connectivity. However, the older variants of Samsung Galaxy phones may not support 5G. OnePlus phones released in the last year or so support 5G connectivity.

Steps to Check If Your Phone Supports 5G

  1. Open the Settings app on your phone
  2. Click on the Mobile Network section
  3. Now, click on your SIM 1 or 2
  4. Select the Preferred Network Type option
  5. If you see an option like 5G/4G/3G/2G (Auto), then your phone supports 5G connectivity
  6. Now click on the 5G/4G/3G/2G (Auto) option to enable the 5G network in your smartphone
  7. If you don’t see this option, then your phone does not support 5G

Now, whenever you are in the range where the SIM provider has 5G coverage, your phone will automatically connect to the 5G network. However, 5G coverage in India is currently very limited, so you may not get 5G connectivity in most places. Airtel and Jio are trying to cover the 5G coverage in Indian cities by March 2024, while Vodafone Idea is yet to roll out its 5G network connectivity.

How to Know if Your SIM supports 5G

Currently, all the SIMs supporting 4G LTE network connectivity will support 5G. Almost everyone is using 4G LTE SIM nowadays, so you don’t have to worry about changing your SIM for 5G network connectivity.
